The International Cricket Council have announced that tickets for the men’s and women’s finals of the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka have sold out.

The finals will be played at the R Premadasa Stadium on October 7, where Stuart Broad’s men hope to retain the crown they won in 2010 in Barbados.

Tickets for other matches are still available, and the third phase of tickets sales are now open to the public.

“We are excited to announce that tickets, to a much anticipated finals have been sold out,” tournament director Ms Upekha Nell announced. “The third phase of ticket sales is now open and I urge all cricket fans to purchase their tickets, as they are selling out fast and be a part of this exciting sporting event.”

ICC chief executive David Richardson added: “I am sure that the Sri Lanka fans are as excited as we are about the fast-approaching ICC World Twenty20 2012. I would like to thank the public of Sri Lanka who have bought tickets in large quantities and I know they can’t wait to take possession of those precious tickets.”
